Free Stuff:

Head to a play area – visit your old favourites or explore somewhere new using our Play Area page.

Visit a beach – it might be cold but pop on a coat and grab a bucket and spade. Can’t beat it!

Walk through a glen/plantation – There are plenty to choose from, we love Glen Helen, Groudle and South Barrule

Manx Museum – It’s a classic but if you’ve not been for a while, there’ll probably be something new to see. Free entry for all – Open everyday 9:30am – 4:30pm

House of Manannan – Our two are both petrified of the ‘dark bit’ but always enjoy driving a ferry! Free entry for kids – Open everyday 9:30am – 4:30pm

Family Library – It’s warm and free. Drop in and grab a book or play a game! Open most days from 10am (check their Facebook page for more info)
